Luggage tags are provided (left in your stateroom and also available from Guest Services) to assist you in locating your luggage in the Port Canaveral Terminal. Please write your stateroom number, name, address and number of bags on these tags (e.g. 1 of 2). Remove any old airline or green Disney tags. Attach the new tags to your luggage and place it outside your stateroom by the given time (around 10:30pm) for complimentary delivery to the ship's terminal. Any luggage not placed outside the stateroom by this time must be hand carried by the guest when disembarking the ship.
It is suggested that you pack all valuables such as cash, negotiable securities or other financial instruments, gold, silver, jewelry, photographic/video/audio equipment, works of art, laptop computers, cellular phones, breakables, medicines or other valuables in your day bag to be kept with you throughout your journey.

Your belongings will be stored and conveniently located in colored zones, according to stateroom number, for easy recognition in the port terminal. Once you locate your luggage, porters will be available to assist you as you proceed through customs.

In accordance with Federal Law, NO fresh fruits, vegetables, plant materials or meats of animal products may be brought back into the United States. Heavy fines may be imposed on guests found with these items.

The porters off the ship providing assistance are an independent company. So, in recognition of this service, it is customary to leave a gratuity.
